What was it like being in a German POW camp? Was the tail-gunner the most undesirable position on a bomber? How great was the Spitfire? Were the Superfortress and the Lancaster the best bombers of World War II? What was it like to experience a firestorm raid over a Japanese city? Two Wings and a Prayer contains the answers to these and many more questions, straight from airmen who experienced the World War II air campaign. ----------------------------This book does not include the author's opinions. Instead, it contains recollections from over fifty Canadian and American World War II Air Force veterans. You will hear from airmen who flew in the Thunderbolt, the Halifax, the Lancaster, the Mosquito, the B-24 Liberator to name only a few. All the campaigns are covered —Europe, Italy, North Africa, Pacific as well as stories from training bases in Canada and the United States. It also has over 80 photographs taken during the war and illustrations drawn by the author. According to most of the airmen who were interviewed, the Second World War years were the best of their lives and many said if they were young they'd do it all again if they had the chance. These are stories about men of action, men who were scared stiff at times and men who, believe it or not, were out for a good time. These stories belong to them., Markham, Ontario, Canada: Red Deer Press, 2012. 321pp. with b/w illustrations.
